Description of the flags

In this picture on Flicker one can see five flags (left to right): 1. Vinci, 2. SCA (Société Concessionnaire d'Aéroport), 3. Cambodian flag, 4. UFE #1, and 5. UFE #2.
     Vinci "is a French concessions and construction company founded in 1899 as Société Générale d'Enterprises"". Sources: Wikipedia and Vinci. Its flag is the company logo on a white horizontal flag.
     Regarding the SCA, "on July 6, 1995, the Royal Government of Cambodia signed a concession agreement with the French-Malaysian joint venture company Société Concessionnaire d'Aéroport (SCA), also refered to as Cambodia Airports, to operate Phnom Penh (PNH - Pochentong International Airport).
     SCA is 70 percent owned by French Groupe GTM and 30 percent by Muhibbah Masterron of Malaysia. Source: The Pochentong International Airport (on Wikipedia}. Its flag is its logo on a white horizontal flag.
     Can anybody help identify the other two UFE's in this picture?

Groupe GTM is owned by Vinci, I think. The "M" in the last flag sure looks like that of Muhibbah Masteron (one "r").

Correct, Vinci Construction acquired Groupe GTM in 2001. I believe Muhibbah Masteron is a Malaysian and/or Cambodian Holding Company. The SCA (Société Concessionnaire de l'Aéroport) administers and runs the airport, but is pretty well is controlled by Vinci and Masteron. According to the Phnom Penh International Aiport Blog "SCA is 70% controlled by Vinci Group (Vinci) from France and 30% by a local holding company, Muhibbah Masteron (Cambodia) Company Limited (MMC). [The] Muhibbah Masteron (Cambodia) Company Limited (MMC) is 70% owned by Muhibbah Engineering Berhad (MEB) and 30% owned by two local Cambodian businessmen, Mr Okhna Kong Triv and Mr Okhna Hann Khieng. Contacts for Muhibbah Masteron (Cambodia) Company Limited are very unclear, it could be a shell company."
Anyway I believe all these flags are corporate flags of the various companies controlling and operating the airport. Unfortunately, I can't make out all the flags clearly enough to be sure, but from left to right I'd agree that it would go Vinci, SCI, Cambodia, unknown, and MMC.

Muhibbah's current (official) name is Muhibbah Engineering (M) Bhd, and it is a Malaysian company.
